I don't get why he is apologizing. Does it matter if your white or black, Macklemore should be happy about his Grammy cause he won it fair and square and he should not even worry about what the other nominees think. If you are a white man singing a black mans music and your better at it than them, that means that they have to work a little harder to be better.
Who does hip hop belong to?
I think hip hop belongs to anybody that wants to do it. I am not a fan and will never ever ever be a fan of the crap but I think that hip hop should belong to anybody that likes to sing it, black or white. There are a lot of black men in the music industry and most of them are in the pop and hip hop and rap part of it and they are probably pretty good at it. Most if the white men are in the rock and country and rock and roll part of it but if some white guy wants to be a hip hop star, let him have at it.
